I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
My first birding expedition, post eye surgery. I am happy to say that I spotted Mr. Weasel and that it was the first Long Tailed Weasel that I have ever seen. It spent at least 5 minutes running up and down that sign post and pretty much posed for photos.
I also discovered that my near vision isn't good enough to use my camera, so these photos were taken by Bob Roseneder and he was kind enough to share them.
It was a lovely sunny day and very enjoyable.
